Quick question about using the Arri FF4 Follow Focus on lenses with short focus throw and crowded markings.
The FF4 comes with the regular 0.8 gear which has 43 teeth:
When using it on lenses with a very short focus throw - does it make sense to get the larger FF4 gear? It has a significantly larger diameter and has 64 teeth instead of 43:
Would it help with the accuracy of pulling focus in a significant way? (by extending, in effect, the focus throw).
Does it make a palpable difference? Is it worth getting it?
Thanks so much!
